Anything noteworthy happening?

Are the guys in the transfer portal practicing?

UB finally posted the spring football guide.

Best: Charlie Jones is still here. So are our veteran transfers who will help our depth, Ashton White, Devon Russell, and Trey Derouen.

Worst: Rodney Scott isnt mentioned. James Potts all over again if he is gone, FL speed with many offers but nada production. Reed and Hawkins have moved on, so less RB depth.

Surprising: Lefebvre working out at WR!

Happy to hear about Jones.

Sad to hear about Scott. 

Surprised by Lefebvre’s switch. 

Hopefully McDuffie adequately fills in the necessary RB depth.

Looks like Fedor, Scott (to JuCO per Twitter), Dadaboe and Nolden are missing from the 2019 Spring Roster.  Coulld be they graduated, transferred or are medical redshirts,

WR looks light in regards to speed unless Nunn becomes the "go to" deep threat.

Nolden transferred to Hampton it appears, Dadeboe is looking to transfer via twitter but nothing on where he’s heades, nothing on Fedor, Scott you already got and trust me Rodney Scott wasnt at UB because of his speed he was there due to his lack of it. He 40 timed at a Miami laser timer in the 4.8s out of HS which is why all the big schools passed on him after offering

Check out where the football team held their practice today.

Saw this video. Nice to have a bit of good news. Field house looks nice on the inside. I still think it’s pretty boring on the outside. Will never understand how it could cost so much to just like idk..paint some blue and white stripes but still, the functionality will be great for the team

coincidentally, we painted big blue stripes around a bunch of big hangars at work.  looked pretty good.  for like a year or 2.  now they're faded and look like crap, and they haven't repainted it because it's a pain in the ass.

OK, nice to see the inside of the field house.  Now, how about performance on the field?  Any new injuries?  Are the QBs and WRs in sync?  Any other position changes?

So Charlie Jones didn’t transfer? That would be great news. I’ve been so into the basketball program I haven’t paid too much attention aside from obviously seeing the field house is ready.

Lefebvre (jeez that takes a long time to make sure you type right) working out as a WR is very interesting. Who would our TE be then??

Obviously there’s still stuff going on in the basketball world and we will all be following along with assistant hires and player transfers etc. but I’m already starting to get hyped for football. Almost time to start switching over and I can’t wait. Let’s prove everyone wrong this year and keep this athletics program moving up. 

Also LL looks dope in those blue shades

With the spring game set to go, that is a sure sign of spring...so it must be time for Dar and I to start the migration back north.  We'll miss the (spring) game, but get back in time to start getting pumped for summer practices and season's start.

Since my Orlando Apollos folded, it's been pretty thin pickin's for football!

The numbers I saw on the QBs looked pretty blah. Not saying that spring ball is any indication but I’m not feeling optimistic about the offense this fall. Hope that changes as we get to summer camp.

Check out @GregVorse’s Tweet:

Aside from what UB released it was a typical spring game, D ahead of rebuilding offense. Our best unit is O-line so some good runs, Marks sat out so all RB's got action. Myers and Aapri Washington sat out too. They went deep as they could at WR, as Ruiz's 4 catch performance showed. UB offered another 6'3 JUCO WR today, so it'sclear they want bodies for the fall.

Not sure what the announcer was talking about.  That was not a TD to Ruiz and wasn't thrown by Johnson.  It was a nice toss and catch though.  Those plays move the sticks no matter what when the QB and receiver are in sync.
